I would assume that the dealership would either reset everything or if necessary, replace the defective CUE system?

johnnyz71 replied to ASW's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500Not entirely true about GAP insurance--if your just leasing with making monthly payments, you won't need GAP. Your money down on the lease and your monthly lease payment should negate GAP insurance. Now, if you pay the lease up front (1 payment) to avoid the interest on the lease payment--you should compare numbers between what GAP insurance will cost over the course of the lease and what the interest would have been. If your leasing for 2 years and your credit is good, the interest is very minimal. Your better off putting the lease money in a money market or some other interest bearing account and drawing monthly payments from there. GAP insurance is really for people who buy brand new vehicles and are walking the fine line between how much money they put down and what they owe on the loan. If you are too heavy on the loan side and you wreck the vehicle, the bank is only going to pay off what the vehicle is worth, not what you owe.
johnnyz71 replied to johnnyz71's topic in For Sale/WantedNo Longer available, the truck was traded in.
johnnyz71 posted a topic in For Sale/WantedDue to recent job change, I have to trade in the Silverado & get a car because of all the driving I will be doing. These are for an extended cab truck & I will have the following for sale: Weather Tech Digital Floor Liners--Front & Rear, the front is set up for bucket seats. Price: $125 for front & rear--want to sell together. Bedrug--it is for the regular 6'6" bed. You would need to investigate buying a new set of velcro for your truck. It is in MINT condition, no rips, stains, odors or tears. Price: $200 Corsa Side Exit Sport Exhaust--Sounds great! In order for me to sell, I need your stock exhaust as well. Price: $400 GM Rear Wheel Liners--$60 I live in Rochester, NY and I would like to deal with a local buyer. If a local buyer wants everything, I would do a package price of $700. pm if interested.
johnnyz71 posted a topic in 2000-2006 & 2007-2014 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 2500HD/3500HDI have a friend who is looking at a 2003 Silverado, but it is listed as a 2003 SK 1 on the title. What is that? Can anyone shed some light on this? Thanks!
I used to have the Kahr PM9 & that was my summer daily carry--good pistol, but I wasn't crazy about the ergonomics for me. I have the M&P Shield (9mm) and it is awesome! Shoots great, has great ergonomics (for me at least) & it conceals on me very well. The best advice I can give is to literally go out and pick the guns up and see what feels good in your hands--but, I would say that you definitely should check out the Shield.
http://www.abc15.com...ily-gets-robbed The difference is your truck is a "public possession" to start with seeing as how you drive & park it in public the majority of the time. But listing electronics, tools, firearms and cash is just advertising things unnecessarily. Would you post about all the valuable possessions you keep in your truck? You seem like the type of guy that likes to wear a "tinfoil hat" if you catch my drift. My truck is a "public possession"? What sense does that make? Last time I checked, my truck was registered/paid for/insured by me. If someone steals it, they will be arrested because it doesn't belong to them. Anyone that posts anything on the internet can be tracked to where they are--so by you posting on a forum, you have exposed yourself.
I currently have: M&P 9 Talo Edition M&P Shield Mega Arms monolithic AR-15, too many things to list on this one. For the people worried about posting your guns, don't talk about your trucks either. When your sleeping, people might come steal your vehicle.

I am looking at getting either 285/65/18 or 275/70/18 in BF GoodRich All Terrain KO's mounted on the 18" Z71 wheel. I have seen pics of the 275/70 here on the forum (it was the member with the black extended cab Silverado) and they looked good. I haven't really seen good pics of the 285/65/18 size with the 18" Z71 wheel. I also have the 2" RC Level Kit installed as well. Here are my questions: What is the main difference? Will these tire sizes throw off my speedo? If so, how much? Will there be a difference in gas mileage? I am under the impression that the 285 size will be wider but the 275 would be a little wider and taller? I appreciate any help and pics of these sizes.
You have no idea of what you are talking about. I used to have my dealers license & here in NYS, you had to jump through hoops to get it. I had 2 dealer plates, the insurance for those plates was around $2500 a year, I had to be bonded & your books can looked at anytime by the DMV no questions asked. So, when I spent my money stocking up my lot, if I wanted to drive around some of the cars--you bet your ass I am going to drive around the vehicles that I OWN!
johnnyz71 replied to ohiohunter2's topic in 1999-2006 & 2007-2013 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500Yes, you can. It's called throwing money away. 1) To my knowledge there isn't a single automobile company that recommends 3K as the change interval, including GM. Most are 5-6K. The 3k number was invented by the Jiffy Lube's of the world to get you to spend more $$$$. 2) I've owned a lot of cars, and know a ton of car people via boards. I'd be willing to bet you can't find a single instance where an engine failed in less than 200K miles because the owner changed the oil every 5K instead of 3K. I'm amazed the crooks at the lube places haven't started recommending to 1K! according to my owner's manuel for 04...it states 3k oil changes... Well lets see, I just happen to have an 04 manual. The only thing it mentions about 3000 miles..is if you ACCIDENTLY reset the OLM and don't know where you are at on miles, change it at 3000 miles then follow the OLM. From the 2004 manual.. I trust the oil life meter. If you feel that changing every 3K makes you feel better, than go ahead. All you have to do is google and you will find numerous articles that state on a V-8 engine, you can go 5K every oil change under NORMAL driving conditions. If you are towing every day, in extreme heat or cold, then you should change every 3K.

I'm amazed the crooks at the lube places haven't started recommending to 1K! according to my owner's manuel for 04...it states 3k oil changes... That's funny, because I had a 2003 Silverado LT and that had an oil life meter on it. I would change the oil when it got down to 10% and that was around 5K-6K miles. Todays engines are built so much better than the engines of the past, that you don't need oil changes every 3K miles. Hell, my fiance's old '04 Accord 4-cylinder said right in the owners manual, oil changes every 10K or if you are in a harsh enviroment (severe cold or severe heat)--every 5K. I trust the oil life meter, everyone in my family has always had GM and everyone goes by the oil life meter since they have been on GM cars. Don't put synthentic in unless the engine requires it, that's another scam that people fall for. There have been numerous tests that show there is no engine damage if you use regular oil compared to synthetic. Sure synthetic might last a little longer, but weigh up the costs between the synthetic & regular and regular still wins. Here is a simple breakdown: 1. Trust the oil life meter 2. You don't need to change every 3K, if you still think you do, seek help for OCD. 3. Synthetic is for engines that require it or very old engines. Use the regular oil, it's cheaper and does just as good a job if you maintain your car. 4. Use 87 octane unless your engine requires it. Again, the vehicles performance was tested using this, you are wasting money if you buy higher octane, the engines computer makes sure everything is running as best as possible.
